Welcome to this course, where we'll completely relight an image in Photoshop using a process that involves adjustment layers, masking, blend modes, and filters. We'll begin by discussing the original image and prepare it for the process of relighting by working in greyscale so that we can focus on how values are represented. From here, we'll apply curves and levels as adjustment layers combined with masking to direct how shadows and highlights are cast based upon our intended light source. Finally, we'll focus on refining highlights, adjusting colors, and applying a lighting effects filter to wrap up our project. After watching these lessons, you'll have the inspiration to relight your own images in Photoshop. Software required: Photoshop 2014.2.2.
